I purchased this Automag about a month or two back off ebay because it featured a few unique pieces I wanted to get a closer look at. It also came with a couple neat accessories which will be highlighted below.
The piece I was most intrigued by, was the on / off bottomline which looks to have been made from a standard 1/8th npt fitting with a plate drilled for the .75 inch bottomline holes.
This isn’t by any means an incredible modification but it’s a simple take on an on / off bottomline mount.
Another neat feature on this Mag is the 3.5 oz tank that has had the burst disc on the asa valve drilled for 1/8th npt for the inlet line. This is like a modification to prevent liquid from getting into the valve. Liquid flows in and drops to the bottom of the tank while gas escapes out of the top of the valve into the Automag’s valve.
Looking at the body on this mag I could tell there is some type of coating on it.
The Automag bodies are typically polished or matte stainless and some have a powdercoat finish on them. This particular body has a metallic sky blue powdercoat and looks fantastic. There is little to no wear on the valve, frame and body so I would guess this mag wasn’t used much.
Other neat parts on this mag include the cast WGP swing frame that came stock on earlier models and a BOA Snakebite barrel.
These early cast frames were purchased from WGP by AGD and are cut out to allow the sear to move freely and unfortunately cannot be moved back to a WGP sniper. Well maybe they can but the walls that support the sear in a WGP frame are not cut out and have more support.
The Boa (Barrel of America) Snakebite barrel is in amazing shape with only very minor wear to the powdercoat finish. Find this boa barrel for sale on the site here.
